48 Hrs. Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

48 Hrs. earns about a point on the 0-100 video scale for every hour in its title. Paramount's decidedly midlevel and fairly disappointing 1080p transfer boasts an increase in clarity and resolution over standard-definition releases, but even for an aging catalogue title the results aren't up to par with the studio's best efforts. The film begins by showcasing some evident wobble over the opening credits, a problem that reappears several times through the movie. Fuzziness and soft shots occasionally make an appearance, but generally the film is moderately sharp and suitably crisp. Detail is never extraordinary, but the bump afforded to the material by the 1080p treatment is evident throughout. Colors are sturdy but not at all vibrant. The transfer exhibits a generally run-down, worn-out look to it; pops, dirt, and random blue vertical lines are present throughout, though generally not in any quantity so as to become a major distraction. Shadow detail is sloppy and blacks are hit-or-miss, generally favoring the latter. A fair bit of grain is retained over the image, spiking at times and practically disappearing at others. It could be worse (take a look at the included trailer), but 48 Hrs. could and should look better than this.


48 Hrs. Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

48 Hrs. features a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack that fares a little better than the video presentation. Things are generally smooth as James Horner's score floats around the front half of the soundstage, the track handling every beat throughout the entire range with a good deal of precision. Bass could be a little tighter, but given the age of the material and the limitations of the source, it's a minor issue. Gunshots pound out with a fair bit of oomph but lack the precision clarity of superior tracks; bullets do hit hard, though, when impacting various solid surfaces. Ambience is a little disappointing, though; a bustling police station in chapter four features background chatter, ringing telephones, and the like, but the effects are contained to the front half of the soundstage. The back channels are practically eliminated from the scene, and indeed, most of the movie. Dialogue is generally accurate but at a few instances a touch mushy. This is a decent soundtrack that probably approaches the upper end of the best-case scenario for a movie like 48 Hrs.
